So.. I know everyone has entertained the thought of the End of the World that is dated to take place during the last month of 2012.
This is what I believe is going to happen. I don't see the earth splitting in half, being hit by an asteroid, losing heat due to the core halting to a stop, or being melted away from massive solar flares from the sun... in fact I believe the earth will be in the same shape as it is today, moderately used and abused like we have the luxury of living someplace else and taken for granted. With the health of the planet aside I still believe we will be in utter chaos.
What you should prepare for. I can see that the mass media is spinning these concepts world wide.. and I mean "world wide". Every human-being with eyes and ears, or even just one of the above has knowledge of this "Dooms Day". This is going to cause a few set backs for us...
- People/families will begin taking what they need to prepare for "whatever" the believe is going to happen.. paying for it..or simply looting it
- You standard essentials will become gold, unfortunately everyone will want them and do anything to get them
- Markets will no longer be able to stay in buisness from people looting thier inventory, simple buisnesses that supply your survival will be out of food, and supplies
- Your homes will be invaded, people will begin looking in alternative places to get food.. you had better have a gun and know how to use it at this point
- military personel that have been protecting power grids all around the world will begin to lose moral when they stop recieving food/suplies. This means they will be abondoned, ill maintained and eventually shut down overtime. Hope everyone has genorators, and has them secured
- ahh.. that precious gasoilne. If your local fuel stations have not been blown up or taken over by local thug orginizations, no more worries.. by this time they will be empty anyways from lack of being re-suplied.. Hope your genertors are solar powered..
- Your town/city will eventually become barren, import/export will not exist, where will you go? Well.. I hope your in good health because your going to be doing a lot of walking, running, hunting to keep you and your families alive everyday.
As you can see, things can begin to get out of hand very quickly and standard survival will be a tall order. Luckily, we have time to prepare for this nasty time period. I recommend every one getting into shape and stocking up on caned food, water and ammo. I can see lots of running and loss of power in 2012 and who knows for how long... and again, this has nothing to do with the world ending, its just a result of world wide panic on a very large scale... you remember Y2K, think of that but a million times worse.
by all means, leave your thoughts. Perhaps we can organize a pre-revolution solution, and maybe someone can dev a solar pack for our droids.. once we lose power we won't be able to charge them! I don't know what I'd do without throttle copter
